Subdued excitement at the table,
heads nod in hushed agreement,
One says, It’s bound to be edible
or it wouldn’t be on the menu.
Aw, come-on you-guys,
this is why we’re here!
Smiles all-round reveal their decision.
What’s it cost in real money?
It’s okay, don’t worry, I got it.
The animated conversation moves on,
accompanied by smiles nods
and the occasional, Sure!
Interruption arrives with a soft voice,
Fower neeps, mince an’ tatties?
Some tentative tasting is followed by,
And it’s only about five dollars each!
